Live Thread: Cavs vs. Pacers (#OnATuesday)

In the words of a Drake verse in an ILoveMakonnen rap… “club’s goin up on a Tuesday.” Well, since that’s pretty much the only direction this Cavs club can go, given they are at the bottom looking up at the rest of the NBA, why not go up on a Tuesday?

In case you’re just tuning in this season, no matter how bad things seem to get for the Cavs… there is always Tuesday. Sure, there’s only been three of them thus far, but the club is 3-0 on the second day of the week. The last such Tuesday, they beat tonight’s opponent, the Indiana Pacers. That also happened to be their last victory of any kind before this current nine game slide. Granted, this game might be a bit tougher, since those same Pacers are probably looking to avenge that (for them) embarrassing loss on that last Tuesday, and the Cavs have looked exponentially worse lately.

Nothing else has really worked to halt the losing (well, not just losing but soul-crushing, 20+ point beatdowns)… not team meetings, not lineup changes, not random player shuffling (adios Pat McCaw… hello Cameron Payne?). About the only hope they have left is a little Tuesday magic.

Prediction: I’ve covered every Tuesday game… so, in keeping with tradition, I’ll prognosticate a lopsided win for the opposition (on the remote off-chance that the disrespect is inspiration to the beleaguered club). And, since the scores have already been getting ridiculous… I’ll go one step beyond and say Pacers win 149-72 (that should fire them up… on a Tuesday).

Catch all the action going up at 7pm EST on FSO, and as always chime in below (unless you’re Anonymous… in which case beat it and get a life).

If the McCaw thing turns into the worst-case scenario, Gilbert will be approaching Stephen territory.

At least the Pacers don’t have know anything they have to fix at halftime. Who knows? Maybe the Cavs saved the 24 minutes of good basketball they have in them for the second half this time.

They’d have to have some sort of proof…I doubt they will find any, if there was even an agreement in the first place…

Gotta keep the 20+ point loss streak alive…maybe the Cavs can sign Michael Carter-Williams when Bulls cut him, let’s get my most disliked players on the same team…

At least they are on pace to beat your intentionally silly prediction.
And somehow they actually won the second quarter.

Once we get down huge, guys have a tendency to try to force things. Especially when we really do not have an offensive fulcrum or bread & butter to go to.

Drew needs to just tell the team to start falling down when people hit them. It’s the only way i can think of to make the refs do their goddamn job.

We’d still be losing, …but id be slightly less angry.

Sexton passed up an open three after Cedi ignored Clarkson in the corner. Cripes.

The initial probing & movement was good. But both guys still play stupid a lot. Corner 3s & layups are the shits you want, & Cedi ignores an open one. Then Sexton tradesxan open 3 for a long 2.

That play deserves a rage timeout.

Delly could be on a minutes restriction.

But agree Cedi & Sexton would build confidence better vs backups. Was the plan with Sexton early. With Hood & Nwaba out, Cedi almost has to start.

Hard to say, it was the same knee he hurt in college…

With this roster, and our terrible D, we have next to no shot vs a good team or better.

Tad of a chance vs mediocre (Grizz, Magic, Pistons, Wiz). OK vs Zion leaguers.

LNJ out with knee injury. Great.
